Border Crossing & Passports
You will need a valid US passport or pass card to get back into the United States. You will be asked as you enter Ontario for your passport to prove your citizenship. Children traveling with only one parent, should carry a consent letter from the other parent and have it notarized. It's a good idea to call ahead prior to crossing to see what items are not allowed in Canada. Do not always rely on websites, always call to stay up to date. Show respect, be honest, and cordial.
